Description Chris Weyl 2009-03-01 22:03:20 UTC
Perl extensions often have private shared libraries under architecture-specific paths.  These extensions are private and not legitimate to depend on, and as such should not be allowed in the provides list of a package.

rpmlint should error on provides generated by shared libraries under:

%perl_archlib
%perl_sitearch
%perl_vendorarch

Comment 1 Ville Skyttä 2010-04-16 20:00:11 UTC
Done upstream (also for similar python, ruby and php paths):

$ rpmlint -i perl-List-MoreUtils
[...]
perl-List-MoreUtils.x86_64: W: private-shared-object-provides /usr/lib64/perl5/auto/List/MoreUtils/MoreUtils.so MoreUtils.so()(64bit)
A shared object soname provides is provided by a file in a path from which
other packages should not directly load shared objects from.  Such shared
objects should thus not be depended on and they should not result in provides
in the containing package.  Get rid of the provides if appropriate, for
example by filtering it out during build.  Note that in some cases this may
require disabling rpmbuild's internal dependency generator.
